(Lalalalalala lalalalalala lalalalalala)

[Verse 1]
It took too long, it took too long, it took too long, for you to call back,
And normally I would just forget that!
Except for the fact it was my birthday
My stupid birthday!

[Verse 2]
I played along, I played along, I played along,
Rolled right off my back!
But obviously my armor was cracked,
What kind of a boyfriend would forget that?
Who would forget that!

[Bridge]
The type of guy who doesn't see,
What he has until she leaves...
Don't let me go!
'Cause without me you know you're lost,
Wise up now or pay the cost,
Soon you will know!

[Chorus]
You're not livin',
'Til you're livin',
Livin' with me!

You're not winnin',
'Til you're winnin',
Winnin' me!

You're not gettin',
'Til you're gettin',
Gettin' to me!

You're not livin',
'Til you're livin',
Livin' for me!

This is the,
Potential break-up song,
Our album needs just one.
Oh baby, please, please tell me!

[Verse 3]
We got along, we got along, we got along until you did that
Now all I want is just my stuff back!
Do you get that?
Let me repeat that,
I want my stuff back!

[Bridge]
You could send it in a box,
I don't care, just drop it off,
I won't be home!
Cause 'without me, you know you're lost,
Minus you, I'm better off,
Soon you will know!

[Chorus]
You're not livin',
'Til you're livin',
Livin' with me!

You're not winnin',
'Til you're winnin',
Winnin' me

You're not gettin',
'Til you're gettin',
Gettin' to me!

You're not livin',
'Til you're livin',
Livin' for me!

[Middle-Eight]
You can try, you can try,
You know I know it'd be a lie,
Without me, you're gonna die!
So you better think clearly, clearly,
Before you nearly, nearly,
Messed up the situation,
That you're gonna miss dearly, dearly c'mon!

[Chorus]
You're not livin',
'Til you're livin', (No)
Livin' with me!

You're not winnin',
'Til you're winnin', (No no noo! )
Winnin' me!

You're not gettin',
'Til you're gettin', (Till your gettin'! )
Gettin' to me!

You're not livin'
'Til you're livin' (No no no no no no no no)
Livin' for me

This is the
Potential break-up song.
Our album needs just one
Oh baby, please, please tell me!

This is the
Potential make-up song.
Please just admit you're wrong!
Which will it be?
Which will it be?
(Lalalalalala lalalalalala lalalalalala)

    This is about Joe
    I think it was before their breakup though.
    Because its "potential breakup song"
    and at the end it said potential make up song.
    I think it was like now you know how I feel and so choose what you wanna do, break up or make up
